  1. Took some pictures about 2 days ago on my way to ptown via the ferry. Waterside is looking nice so far but I have to say I'm not a fan of the materials in use. I guess I thought they would be using real brick for the fasade and such but oh well. Still looks decent.

  6. 1. So no more state funding for Virginia Beach. 2. The money is still going to be spent somewhere else in the state. 3. Virginia Beach now has to pay the state back for the money they used for the Norfolk southern right away being 20-40 million. 4. Virginia Beach still has a tax increase, which was a main issue of the no light rail people. 5. Bus transfer station that was to be incorporated into the light rail system will no longer be built. 5. No added bus routes/ exstended routes 6. Nothing will be done about traffic in the years to come. 7. No bike paths to be built beside the light rial lines, with plans that would have connected Norfolk's elizabeth trial to virginia beach on to the ocean front. What are the positives again? Alot was incorporated into this project. This is so disheartening.Didn't the arena people say light rail was a major component of the deal? Doesn't this signal that Virginia Beach is not business- economic friendly? Seeing how deeply conservative people have become in this election this vote wasn't surprising. I'm still not seeing the positives, especially since your taxes are still increasing at the same percent.
  7. On the bright side we now know which route Norfolk will take. They were just waiting to see if Virginia Beach would move forward or not. Military hwy if VB doesn't move forward. Hampton Blvd corridor if VB does. Plus Norfolk is already getting its study over with and should be done in a year. VB eventually will see Norfolk's success once it's built out then add to it. Unfortunately it might be too late for VB to get actual funding.
  8. sorry for the bump, I guess I'm just thirsty for something new to go up. Seems like there has been a slow down in development lately or at least news coverage of things.
  9. So has anyone herd about this? Looks to be about 17-21 stories. Everything I've seen this company post pretty much gets built. On the flip side when this finally goes through planning I could see the design getting dumbed down to a brownish, brickish structure. This is not on the Tarrents Bay property but has front street running down the middle. Looks like it will be next to the front street flats. It is listed under both commercial, hospitality, and residential. Edit: upon further research it is a hotel/ entertainment complex and Beau Rivage is associated with hotels on the water.
  10. This development is now Pinewell Station. It was approved in February 25,2016 by the city planning commission. I've herd nothing about it since then. It could be possible that they revised for something entirely different (15 story tower) after showing their financiers that they could get approval. Its anyone's guess http://www.norfolk.gov/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Item/2054?fileID=5092
  11. This project is still on track, I think they have a meeting with the city some time around September 22-24th which I think is the final go ahead. So we will have more news then. reposting the renderings because a lot of the links above don't work anymore
